Oxford English Dictionary

Your institution now has access to the Oxford English Dictionary!

The Oxford English Dictionary (OED) is widely regarded as the accepted authority on the English language. It is an unsurpassed guide to the meaning, history, and pronunciation of more than 600,000 words, past and present, from across the English-speaking world.

As a historical dictionary, the OED focuses not only on the meanings of the word, but also on the history of the word, and how its meaning has changed over time. The OED traces the history of the English language through 3 million quotations, from classic literature and specialist periodicals, to films scripts and cookery books. Updates revise and extend the OED at regular intervals, each time subtly adjusting our image of the English language.

For more information on the content you have access to, please click here.

Make the most of your Oxford English Dictionary services…

Take a tour of the product and learn how its user friendly functionality can help you organize and manage your research journey.

If you have any questions about the OED, please contact your librarian. 



AUTh LIBRARY NEW TOOLS : Browzine & LibKey Nomad

Browzine has sorted AUTh and HEAL-Link e-journals into broad subjects and then into narrower disciplines. You can save and organize your most-used e-journals on virtual bookshelves saved to your account. The result is an easy and familiar way to browse through, read, and monitor scholarly e-journals across disciplines. It can be used for desktops and laptops as well for tablets and smart phones (Android and iOS).

LibKey Nomad is a browser extension for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Edge which allows you to access full text articles subscribed to by AUTh Library and HEAL-Link on the open web, including many scholarly publishers' websites, PubMed, Google Scholar, and Wikipedia. In other words it automatically provides instant links to full text content for article subscribed to by your library - or open access alternatives - as you do research on the web and come across literature. In each case, Nomad works with your subscribing library to figure out the fastest path to content across thousands of publisher websites.
For accessing the full text you must be either connected to AUTh network or use some of the other alternatives provided by the University to access the resources outside the campus.
